James Corden, an English television broadcaster, broke down in tears on Thursday night as he presided over his final ever episode of The Late Late Show.

Fans watched as Corden performed his final Carpool Karaoke with his closest friend Adele while Tom Cruise, Will Ferrell, and Harry Styles made appearances on his final episode.

With an emotional monologue about the “divisions” in America, Corden concluded his eight-year run on US television. The 44-year-old claimed to have observed how the nation had evolved over the previous ten years and to have detected a gloomy shade hanging over everything. He asked his audience to rethink the direction the nation was going.

He said;

“I’ve struggled to find the words to sum up what this past eight years have meant to me. We started with Obama then Trump then a global pandemic. I’ve watched America change a lot over these past few years, I’ve watched divisions grow, I felt a sense of negativity.

“I guess all I really want to stay is, I implore you to remember what America signifies to the rest of the world. My entire life, it’s always been a place of optimism and joy. Sure, it has flaws. Show me a country that doesn’t… every single one of us is a work of progress.

“Just because someone disagrees with you, it doesn’t make them bad or evil. There are so many people who are trying to stoke those differences. We have to try to the best we can to look for the light, look for the joy. It’s out there. That’s all this show has ever been about.

“Thank you for letting me do this. Thank you for letting into your home every night.”

During the segment, Corden’s sidekick and the show’s co-head writer, Ian Karmel, told him, “This is like Michael Jordan retiring at the height of his powers.”

Corden was then surprised with a special message from Biden, he said, “James, congratulations. 1200 shows in eight years.

After the day you spent working for me at The White House, I’m surprised you lasted eight years at any job.

To you, Reggie and the entire team, thank you for all the joy you brought to homes across America and special thanks for never asking me to sing in the car…We’ll miss you pal. I can’t wait to see what you do next.”

The evening came to a close with Corden giving a moving piano performance of a song that encapsulated his stint as a series host.

In order to host the CBS institution, he initially took over The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson in 2015 and relocated his family to Los Angeles. The Englishman, who has lived abroad for almost ten years, is now returning to the UK as a sign of gratitude.
